Movember. The only time of year where guys can be hairy, mustached, creepy guys — all in the name of solidarity. And man were our hallways filled with some creeps.
It didn’t take much arm-twisting for the 3e guys to give up shaving for a month. However, they weren’t going to go through a month of humiliation wearing silly soup strainers on their faces. Instead, they would be grubby beard growers for the month of November — affectionately known as Movember — until they shaved a glorious lip emblem on the last day of the month.
The results were beautiful. Well, by beautiful we mean downright creepy. For one day, our halls were filled with Tom Selleck’s, 14th-year seniors, trash staches, questionable uncles, a cowpoke, and a surprise appearance by a real-life Ned Flanders.
In keeping true to the roots of Movember, 3e employees were asked to bid for the best mouth brow. Earnings would support prostate cancer research.
In the end (no pun intended), a whopping $63 was raised, and eight winners were crowned. But it was widely known they all went home looking like losers.
